Charity Work and Fund Raising

As a church school we always try to think of those in need who deserve our support and generosity. Much of our charity work is co-ordinated through The Good Samaritan Fund. The children are invited to contribute a small amount of money to our Good Samaritan Fund each week. Monitors collect for the fund each Monday afternoon and donations from the fund are sent regularly to the various charities which we support during the year.

The children themselves, through our School Council, choose which charities we support. The help which our chosen charities provide covers many things, but each charity must do one of the following: -

  1. Give relief from poverty.            
  2. Help with education.
  3. Be of benefit to our community.

In the past few years we have supported the following charities.

Jeans for Genes Comic Relief / Sport Relief

Bishop of Blackburn's Harvest Appeal Christian Aid

We also support a variety of special national fundraising events on an annual basis.
